Gorgeous Kitchen Designs

Your kitchen is the most important room in the house. It is the biggest selling point if you ever put your house on the market and it is the focal point of the house. It is where family dinners take place, or the sacred wine and cheese night with the girls or where Christmas dinner is prepared. It is the one room in the entire house you don't want to get wrong! 

Kitchen design is an art form and if you don't know what you're doing, ask for help from the experts! We have decided to use The Good Guys simply because it is a one-stop shop and we can hold them accountable should anything go wrong! If you head down this path, makes sure you go into your appointment with a pretty concrete idea of what you're after as before you know it you're locking in designs and signing contracts.

I wanted to take this opportunity to share with you a few gorgeous kitchen designs that are influencing our new kitchen.

I am loving the simplicity of this kitchen. The white, timber and grey work beautifully together to create a blank canvas. If you're looking to flip a house, using this colour palette will improve the houses' sale-ability because it has a neutral palette that could be adapted to any style. I think the grey concrete look tiles really make this kitchen pop.

I think this is the most gorgeous kitchen for a farm house! The baby blue island bench paired with the white bench tops and splash backs is a perfect combination. This kitchen is highly functional as well with lots of cupboard space, a nice big work bench and amenities falling within the perfect triangle.

Huge fan of the gum metal grey/blue cupboards! Although this kitchen isn't huge, it is well proportioned and practical. The large draws and decent sized work benchs will allow for any master chef dish to be whipped up in no time! I'm loving the timber and subway tiles to add that industrial flavour to the kitchen design. Personally, I'm not a fan of white tiles because I hate cleaning, so I would have opted for a grey tile or floorboards.

Such a cool kitchen with a modern industrial twist. I think the concrete benchtop works awesomely with the pendant lights and the stainless steel splash back.  The white cupboards are timeless, neat and tie in nicely with the rest of the kitchen. You could definitely adapt this style to reflect your personal taste and it would still look great!

Another beautifully designed and well thought out kitchen! The marble splashback pairs beautifully with the aluminium bench tops and white cupboards. The natural light floods the kitchen from the windows strategically placed over the sink and built in study knook which lights the whole kitchen up! My favourite thing though is the light timber floors, tying this design together and really accentuating the natural light in the kitchen!

This is one of my personal favourites, mainly because I am in love with marble. Although I think this kitchen would be a little pricey just by looking at the thickness of the bench tops (unless they wrapped it), it is just stunning. I'm loving the feature black cabinetry paired with the marble bench tops and splashbacks. I also love the hidden extractor, attention to detail! I probably would have used a lighter timber floor, but this is still absolutely stunning - I would love to see the rest of the house!

This kitchen is unique in its design and it really works! The use of marble and timber really compliments one another to create a modern, yet warm and inviting kitchen. There is plenty of room for storage and I would bet that there would be a beautiful walk in pantry as well.
